The City of Winters is constructing a roundabout at the intersection of Walnut Lane and Grant Avenue (Highway). Vintage Paving Co., is the project contractor. Work began on Monday, Aug. 14.

To minimize the total contract duration and maximize the use of local, state and federal funds, the contractor will close Grant Avenue to through traffic during six one-week periods of time.

A detour will be posted to direct traffic via East Baker Street around the work zone. Local traffic will be allowed access to Walnut Lane during these detour closures.

Preliminary work at the site began this week, and detour closures will be scheduled. When the road is closed, it will be closed Monday morning through 3 p.m. on Friday, and will stay open over the weekends. The city expects about six road closures total, and will announce when those will occur. Walnut Lane residents will still be allowed to access their properties.

For more information, contact the city’s resident engineer, Michael Karoly, 916-960-6308 or mkaroly@willdan.com, or Carol Scianna, Winters Environmental Services manager, 530-794-6715 or carol.scianna@cityofwinters.org.

  1. Winters does not need this! What a waste of money and resources. Invest in our youth and after school programs. We are becoming “trendy” to serve visitors instead of meeting the needs of our own community members. How about finishing the side walks on the west side of Grant to give our kids a safe path to school?

  3. I’m so glad I’m leaving here. This town is just not thinking of the everyday people or their children. You know the ones who have supported the local businesses. I don’t know who is making these decisions it’s not with us in mind. It’s been going down hill for years. No we cannot make the meetingsame, we are busy busting our buts trying to survive, working sometimes 2 jobs. Maybe if some of these things were voted on this town would get back to normal.
